Spring Break 2017 is the same week for Cobb, DeKalb, Fulton and Gwinnett County Schools

Cobb, DeKalb, Fulton and Gwinnett are the only four counties I researched since they all surround The Aha! Connection community.  Keep this in mind when leaving or returning to Atlanta.   Lots of cars will be on the roads Friday after school!  You may want to wait until Saturday or Sunday to leave town if you can!

Some “Unputdownable” Books for Spring Break!

My high school BFF’s know me so well!  One of them sent me this article about seventeen “unputdownable” books.  Oh my gosh.  I’ve never used that word but “unputdownable” books are my favorite kind!  Modern Mrs. Darcy defines an unputdownable book as “so compelling I just can’t put it down until I reach the last page”  You can read about all of her 17 choices here or,  I scanned her list of seventeen and decided to download the following 7 to my Kindle immediately.  Feel free to leave a comment with your recommendations for “unputdownable” books!
